Thank you. How similar are console and terminal? Cause I can't get to either one...
I usually refer to ćonsole'as what you can get outside of a gui, and terminal as what you get inside. Itś my post youŕe figuring. They both run bash. There are 6 consoles on most distros, you type startx in one and then you can open things like xterm, which give terminals that run bash. They are places you run a shell where you can run other stuff.
My point was that you don need a gui running to set up lilo or grub.
